the several block radius in this neighborhood, i talked to several people that did not know this james holmes, but i did talk to a former bouncer just about half an hour ago who lives in this neighborhood and he recognizes james holmes and the former bouncer was, you know, working at this bar around the corner, pretty popular for the folks who live here, and he describes james holmes as a laid-back guy that would go to the bar every now and then on sunday nights for karaoke night, and that he mainly kept to himself and that he would show up to the bar by himself and that he was really never seen with anybody. so at this point, we are watching the scene unfold and then there's no doubt, with the neighbors here that are caught up in this chaotic situation, there's no doubt this incident is going to be, you know, burned on the consciousness of colorado for many years, given this incident. it's astonishing watching this unfold. >> you know the area and you know what happened overnight. this was the multiplex in suburban denver. we know it's very close to an air force base and that there were some

that someone like james holmes had access to the kinds of weapons, to all the ammunition that he used in the midnight attack. >> he was able to shoot almost 70 people in the span of just a couple of minutes before your guys were able to get there. do you personally think he should have had access to that kind of a weapon? >> i think my opinions on guns and gun control are really, you know, every police chief in america would say we're here to enforce the law and our public policy and democratic process sets policy on gun control and all that kind of stuff. i've been asked that several times and it's not my place to weigh in on gun policy. i've never been a big fan of guns myself, and i don't know a lot about weapons so i accept and what i have said is in our society in colorado, he legally possessed those weapons. he legally possessed that ammunition. he legally possessed those magazines. to the extent an event like this results in society's introspection around weapons, that's probably a good thing. you and i and other americans have seen events like this, virginia tech shooting, for
